Benjamin Disraeli argued that “what Manchester does today, the rest of the world does tomorrow,” while Stuart Maconie reckons, “Manchester has fancied itself rotten for as long as anyone can remember”. The thing is, Manchester fancies itself for a reason…
Manchester gave rise to socialism and the Suffragettes; it was here that Marx cooked up the Communist Manifesto. Wildly ambitious, Manchester was the original industrial city, once the largest centre of manufacturing in the world. This is not the kind of past that a city forgets. Go into its museums and you’ll find their collections are among the best in Britain. But before you write this off as just history, think on.
The Whitworth balances historic exhibitions with contemporary commissions. The Royal Exchange makes some of the UK’s best new theatre. And Manchester International Festival takes inspiration from the past, but merges music, art and performance in entirely new ways. Manchester today is a mish-mash of old and new, and of industry and creativity. So while this is a city with a past, Manchester has its eyes on the future. The joy of visiting today is that, without too much effort, you get to experience a slice of both.
